Funding Research Applications for 2018/19

This year the New Zealand Artificial Limb Service (NZALS) is making available a Contestable Research Fund of $20,000 to promote research into issues that will benefit amputees. It is anticipated that the programme would be suitable, though not necessarily limited to, summer studentships.

Applications for this round are now being accepted. NZALS likes to be able to fund more than one project each year should they meet the necessary criteria. 

Appropriate topics include (but are not limited to) research on:

  • rehabilitation/gait
  • clinical aspects
  • amputee pathways
  • components/materials
  • prevention strategies - especially in the areas of vascular disease and diabetes
  • related topics with a focus on engineering/bio-mechanics

Research proposals for the 2018/19 year must be received by COB Monday 3 September 2018.

Decisions on funding will be made by the NZALS Board and will be final, based on recommendations by the Board's Research Committee.

Applicants will be advised of a decision by Wednesday 10 October 2018.
